FromDC2Iowa: Public transportation and energy policy

Excerpted from this post at FromDC2Iowa

Public Transportation: Having once been a part of a legal team
representing American Airlines, and subsequently a United Airlines
groupie (lifetime Red Carpet Club membership, credit card, "Mileage
Plus"), it is with sadness that I have finally had to acknowledge that
our airline industry is disfunctional as a transportation system. The
rising costs for fewer flights, including the nickle-and-diming us for
everything from pillows to peanuts, the delays, the even more crowed
seats, the lost luggage, the lines and necessity to dress twice the
morning of a flight to satisfy the terrorist-prevention folks -- the
list goes on. Add to this the flights' impact on greenhouse gasses,
global warming and the ozone hole, and it's just not the
transportation system it used to seem to be -- not to mention the fun.
